Special Night Out for Two Seniors in Love.

Special Night Out for Two Seniors in Love.

At Carlton Senior Living, we not only try to provide new and exciting experiences for our residents, but we also try to provide outlets in which residents can experience the same lifestyle they had before joining our Carlton family. One example of this is our Date Night. Our driver uses personal invitations, flowers, balloons and a reservation at a preferred restaurant to make a memorable night. Watch as two of our lovely and loving residents live their lives to the fullest together at Carlton.
